R380 F/s

I just took in a '95 DI with an R380 5 speed in it. Shifted fine. No problems that I could tell (and I own an LT77). The truck was a two owner vehicle with 123K miles on it. It was serviced at a Land Rover dealership in Westchester, NY for most of it's life.

I'll have the transmission out in a few days. What's one of these things worth the days? I'm open to offers.
Thanks,
Paul

Are you taking the transmission out and selling it alone? If so, I'm interested.

Yes, I am parting out the truck and will have the transmission available in the next few days.

Sorry about any confusion but I posted this to the wrong board.

A disco R380 is much different than a Defender R380.

What are the differences between an R380 in a Disco and one in a D90?

I have an '85 RRC with an LT77 and I was considering keeping it for the day my transmission bit the dust. I have a long stick and the R380 is more like the short stick LT77's found in RRC's after 1985. Is the long stick one of the differences in the D90?

Thanks for any info you can provide.
Cheers,
Paul

I tried to use a Disco box in a Defender / 109 that I built and it would not work becuase the shifter mount point is wrong ( on a disco the shifter mounts towards the back, but on a Defender it mounts towards the front. To change it the guts of the transmission and the shifter mechanism has to be replaced. Much cheaper to buy the proper one.

This is based on a three year old memory

That would make sense. On my '85 RRC the transmission shifter is forward of the transfer case shifter. If I were to keep the transmission and use it on my truck when my LT77 bites the dust, I would have to remove the center console and search for a one from a post '86 five speed RRC from the UK.
